    THE BIG CATS, Due May 17, 2019

    Swap Due Date: May 17, 2019
    Signup/Withdraw Date: May 17, 2019
    Number of ATCs: 3 for 3 or 6 for 6
    Number of Participants: Unlimited
    Medium: Any and all media and techniques are welcome
    THE BIG CATS, THE WILD CATS, Due May 17, 2019



    RETURNS MAILED 5/22



    There have been a lot of cat swaps, but I noticed these swaps focus primarily on house cats.
    I have been reminded that there are small cats, and there are BIG cats.
    This swap is for the BIG cats, and by that I mean the WILD CATS, the cats other than the domestic house kitties.
    Lions, tigers, leopards, Lynx, cougars, cheetahs, pumas, panthers, jaguars, mountain lions, bob cats, Geoffroy's cat ..........
    (This swap includes the "small" wild cats, of which there are, per Wikipedia, 28 species of "small" wild cats.......)

    This is an open style, any media, swap.
    Do collage, hand drawn, hand painted, or some combination.
    Your cats can be flat, 3-D, collage, watercolor, paint, encaustic wax.
    This swap is any theme, as long as there is a BIG or WILD cat on it.

    Do Chinese New Year, Year of the Tiger. Do the Western Zodiac, the Lion.
    The cats can be in the Mayan jungles, or lurking the Aztec ziggurat temples of Tenochtitlan, or found in the local zoo.
    Your cards can show running cats, hunting cats, resting cats, whimsical cats.
    Your cats can have something to say (text), or they can be silent.
    Go wild. Have fun. Be creative. Use your imagination!


    * This is a 3 for 3 or 6 for 6 card trade. Make 3 or 6 cards and receive the same number back.

    * ALL mediums and techniques are welcome.
    Please make sure you add some depth to your cards, whatever style you choose. Your mediums can include, but are not limited to: paper, tissue paper, crayon, acrylic, watercolor, gel pens, colored pencil, rubber stamping, ink, newspaper clippings, magazine clippings, etc. Please do not take a magazine image, cut it into a square, glue it onto some colored paper, and call it done. Make the ATC YOUR CREATION! I do ask that you send in your best work --- something you would not be disappointed in receiving if it was sent to you.

    *Please sign up by posting to this thread.
    * ONLY ATCs allowed. No APCs accepted.
    * All cards need to be standard ATC size: 2.5” x 3.5”
    * All cards need to be sent each in their own plastic sleeve. This is for their protection!
    * All cards need to be sturdy enough to earn the name “card” (no floppy or flimsy paper). If your ATC is drawn or otherwise created on a single sheet of paper, and "flimsy", please back your ATC with something stiffer, such as a cereal box. Just as important, check for cards that are too thick. Each card must still be capable of fitting into the standard ATC sleeve. If your ATC will not fit into an ATC sleeve, it is too bulky.
    * Please put the Swap name and your Username on the back of all cards. And please write clearly on everything!
    .....We can't give you itrades and/or You Rock! points if we don't know who you are.
    * Please confirm there is enough postage on the envelope.
    .....Please check both the envelope you send to me, and the envelope I need to send back to you.
    * If you are unsure about mailing ATCs, or just may want to pick up some good tips for shipping, here is a great link.
    e is a great link.
    http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/show...ards-for-Swaps

    * If you are inside the U.S., please include a Self Addressed Stamped Envelope 4 by 9 1/2 inches, with 55 cents postage, or one "Forever" stamp if trading 3 cards, OR additional postage or two "Forever" stamps if trading 6 cards, OR if your cards are extra heavy.

    * Canadian and other International participants, if you have U.S. funds, or U.S. postage, it is greatly appreciated. Please send $1.00 or 1 "Forever" stamp. However, since many of you do not have access to U.S. stamps, I will cover your postage. Please include a self addressed envelope 4 by 9 1/2 inches (10 x 28 cm), or if you do not have the correct size envelope, please include a large mailing label with your address and I will provide the envelope.

    * I apologize for being so demanding about the envelope size, but the postal rates in the US charge extra for thickness. When cards are stacked, or overlapped, in (a smaller) envelope, it almost always costs more to mail. If you send me a small envy, the cards get stacked. When I use the 4 inch by 9 1/2 inch business size envelopes, I can spread the cards over the area, making a THIN package, and only pay for basic (minimum) postage.

    * Cards are due to me by May 17, 2019. Please allow sufficient lead time for cards to get to me, particularly if you are an International participant. Returns will be mailed promptly. Late cards will be returned, as it is unfair to those participants who always have their cards in early or on time.

    * A hostie card in this theme is appreciated but not at all expected!

    * Thank you for considering this swap! If you have my address from previous swaps, it hasn't changed. If you are new, or have misplaced my address, please send me a PM.

    * Above all ~Have fun!!!
